    Do you tent, rent, or use a trailer?

    I have a huge tent, love the thing.

    I have a small tent with all the accessories -- but my wife won't join me. So we have an 18' Camper Trailer. I'll post a picture after I get home.

    use to use a tent or just out under the stars in a sleeping bag. part of me just doesn't consider it camping if you use a camper. but as i get older, that opinion could change!

    Mine is the opposite. I think I want a camper and she doesn't get it.

    I haven't been camping in years. We use to use a pop-up camper during deer season.

    I'll have to look into one of those ALiners. I've never seen one before.

    Great pics! Reminds me of Deer Camp in my younger days.

    I have a 31" travel trailer with 2 slide outs. That we use almost every weekend. My daughter and I go tent camping at least twice a summer, we started this tradition last year. She is 8 now so hopefully I get a few more years of this before she looses interest.

    We're tent campers but we're now using those large inflatable beds - guess we're getting old.

    @ 1894.
    I really like your camp. Especially the lever guns hanging on the wall. Looks real inviting. My kind'a place. I'm turning a little green.
    @ melsdad.
    Good to hear that you camp with daughter. Enjoy it while you can. Special times and special memories. :))

    I use those. Not reason to not sleep comfortably even when you're roughing it.

    Thanks Grey , I like the camp . It has most all the comforts of home . ( taxes are about the same as home :rolleyes: ) without the electric , sewer , piped in water , phone / cable tv lines , road maintenance / snow plowing ... makes for a nice place to get away from it all in our lil 6.5 million acre state park .

    But the view stays the same , I'm a bit green with envy for the views your camp has seen :cool:

    I got into the roughing it thing back in the late seventies. By the mid eighties I camped with what I could carry on my back. Still doing it that way, but I'm getting a little old for that now.:(

    I stopped camping that way when I got married.

    I was all about going out in the middle of nowhere with the clothes on my back and a couple of sandwiches (and beer) to keep me alive.

    Call me crazy - but - two years ago, while on our trip to Gatlinburg, we parked beside a home made Tear Drop Camper. I thought it was really neat. I've been wanting to build one. Don't know if I ever will - but I think it would be fun. Here is a link just in case you've never heard of them.

    Has anyone ever built one or is anyone as goofy as I am???????

    I've been interested in TearDrops for a while now. After the kiddo is born I'm allowed to start on hobbies again.

    I think it's going to be my first real project in a while.

    Are those the ones with the "living room" feature?
